I have had a hiatial hernia for a number of years. Recently, I started throwing up after meals. The results of a Fluoroscopy (spelling?), indicated that half my stomach is pulled up through the diaphragm. Apparently the hole has gotten larger over the years. One gastroenterologist has recommended surgery and sent me to a general surgeon for an operation. Questions, if you have any experience with this condition
1. The name of the operation is Nissen fundoplication. It is done laparoscopically. If you or someone you know has had this operation, what comments, concerns or input do you have. Especially, are you GLAD you had it done?
2. Did you go to a general surgeon or a vascular surgeon or what type of surgeon?
3. Side effects if any?
4, What were your original symptoms and were they resolved?
